Brian and Teresa Mullins along with Ken Dodd, Operations Partner, have been working together since 2008 with plans to continue to grow the M&M Hospitality team of restaurant and entertainment venues.
Brian and Teresa Mullins have been in the residential building and development business for over 30 years. In 2001 the Mullins’ began developing Governor’s Pointe, a community of 141 home sites located a few minutes from the rapidly growing Harbour View corridor at I-664 and Route 17 in Suffolk, Virginia. Brian dedicated many years to planning and implementing his concept of a neighborhood of fine custom homes in a picturesque setting, bordered by the Nansemond River and Route 17.
As the development came to life, the thought of a community restaurant and retail shopping area would complement the development and provide local residents a new fine-dining option. Vintage Tavern opened in 2006 and quickly established itself as one of the top 10 restaurants in Hampton Roads, featuring Seasonally Southern Cuisine.
Two years later, in 2008, Brian was back at it developing, designing and constructing River Stone Chophouse in Harbour View – the first world-class American steakhouse in Hampton Roads. It didn’t take long for River Stone to join Vintage Tavern as one of Hampton Roads’ top 10 restaurants, as both restaurants received dining awards from Virginian Pilot, Virginia Living, Coastal Virginia Magazine and Wine Spectator. With the creation of the two restaurants, M&M Hospitality was born.
Brian and Teresa acquired the property along Bennett’s Creek Marina to build their newest ventures, Decoys Seafood Restaurant featuring the Blind Duck Tiki Bar, Bennett’s Creek Marina, and the Landings.
